We never thought we would ever need to set up a go fund me for someone we love but here we are.
Our sweet, caring, selfless mom was diagnosed towards the end of 2016 with a rare form of Sarcoma Cancer that was caused by the radiation treatments she received about 28+ years ago for Colon Cancer. It was very hard to hear from her Oncologist that this form of Sarcoma Cancer she has is not curable. She is and continues to be a strong woman and a survivor for all these years! She has been trying to stay optimistic and positive about this Cancer fight!
She has already finished two rounds of radiation over the past couple of months and there have been some improvements on the lesions she already had but her recent PETscan revealed the Cancer has spread. She will start a round of chemotherapy this week. We are hoping it helps lesson her pain and the spread of more lesions.
Some of our family and friends that know what she has been going through recently have been asking how they can help during this difficult time in the fight for her life. Just a simple prayer could make miracles happen! But at this point we are asking for more than prayers. The medical expenses are starting to pile up so we are asking for your help. The money would go towards co-pays, medication, gas and other daily expenses to keep her comfortable. It would be great to eliminate the financial burden from our parents to focus on what really matters at this time. If you can help we would greatly appreciate it!
If you personally know our mom, you know she is a very special woman that loves people and being social! Our family always jokes with her by saying she knows everybody in town and... she does! She has such a kind heart that wants to help out everyone she knows but she now needs your help.
We want to thank everyone for the continued love, support and prayers during this difficult time. We will try to keep everyone updated. Please feel free to share this go fund me post with your family and friends. Continue praying!
